Monday, August 21, 2023

A man has been jailed after breaching a civil injunction in Fleetwood.

Ashley Tombs, 34, was given a civil injunction on May 17, 2022, to prevent anti-social behaviour.

It was granted by a judge, following numerous complaints from the public regarding repeated incidents of anti-social behaviour. This included making numerous female victims feel harassed, alarmed, and distressed and impacting on their ability to go to work.

The injunction banned Tombs from:

-       causing harassment, alarm or distress

-       using abusive or foul language towards any person

-       threatening to use violence or using violence against any person.

On August 16, 2023, Tombs was arrested in Fleetwood for breaching the injunction on 14 counts between June 1 2023 to August 2023.

During a hearing at Blackpool County Court, it was found there had been further breaches of the injunction by Tombs between April 2023 and May 2023.

On August 17, Ashley Tombs, 34, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to seven months in prison for breaching the injunction.
